Combat Air Museum Tour

Visitors to the Combat Air Museum will get to see two hangars containing 38 military aircraft ranging from the earliest aviation period to the present day, including 7 WWI replica aircraft; historic aircraft engines of many sizes and types, including a rare 1942 General Electric I-16 Whittle gas turbine engine; and an extensive display of artifacts and dioramas and a growing gallery of military aviation art.
